Dental bonding can be used to improve discolored or chipped teeth, and gaps. Composite bonding can also be used in place of amalgam fillings. At Bellefontaine Family Dental, we offer dental bonding in a variety of tooth colors to help match your natural teeth as much as possible. Dr. Ahmad helps improve your smile by completing this treatment in just one visit.

The Bonding Process
Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. During the bonding process, our skilled dentist places a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty-like when first applied, we can shape and sculpt it to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed, and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be comfortable and painless.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Our dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten the color of your teeth.
